Lawsuits are one thing, but has the chief set himself up for *criminal* prosecution? That is, if he issues this as an order to his subordinates, he runs afoul of the SCOTUS assertion that:
“Under ‘color of law’, it is a *crime* for one or more persons using power given to him or her by a governmental agency (local, state or federal), to willfully deprive or conspire to deprive another person of any right protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. Enforcement of ‘color of law’ does not require that any racial, religious, or other discriminatory motive existed. Criminal acts under color of law include acts within and beyond the bounds or limits of lawful authority.”
Well, the 2nd Amendment has not been incorporated in the 7th Circuit as yet, so he probably could not be prosecuted for violating the 2nd Amendment. It appears he might be prosecuted for violating Wisconsin's Keep and Bear Arms Constitutional protection, which is arguably stronger than the 2nd Amendment, as the federal Constitution guarantees a “republican government” to the States.
